Barcelona are ready to challenge Arsenal for Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas. The Daily Express says Barca are devising a way to bring Real Madrid shot stopper Casillas to the Camp Nou.

Casillas has become increasingly disenchanted with life at the Bernabeu and was benched for Real's opening day victory against Real Betis in Carlo Ancelotti's first game in charge.

The 32-year-old has been linked with Chelsea and Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger distinctly unimpressed with Wojciech Szczesny's display in their surprise defeat at home to Aston Villa.
